Queen Bee August Kit

It's reveal time at Simply Obsessed. The August Queen Bee kit is gorgeous!!! I can't believe how beautiful the yellows, teals and grays look together. Heather did a great job matching everything together. And don't forget about all the embellishments. Wow!! I created two layouts and a card and still have tons left over. I still haven't even used the clear border strips, prima flowers, making memories frame or Fancy Pants journaling tags. So yeah, I am going to be making some more layouts with this kit!

For my first layout I chose this picture my husband snapped of Frances and myself at the riverwalk on a Saturday afternoon. I didn't even know he took the picture and when I was looking through the photos later that day this one made me a little teary eyed. She is growing so fast and it is sad knowing I won't be able to hold her like this forever. I punched holes in the cork to make a button and put some twine through, then used the diecuts from the add-ons for my journaling. Then I cut up the Prima Pearls so I would have enough for my next layout.

For my second layout I choose this photo of Frances running through the grass. I snapped this while she was running away from me and then edited it in photoshop. I layered lots of the patterned paper and made more buttons out of the cork circles. Then I added the rest of the prima pearls, some of the diecuts from the addons and some stitching.

And for my last project I created this card from one of the diecuts.

Kits ship the first week of August and there's only a few left in the Simply Obsessed store!!
